What To Expect

Board your luxury coach, and travel from Rome to Tuscany with its scenic, rolling hills. Your first stop is Montepulciano, a town renowned for its fine wine and views. The Renaissance hilltown is best-known for its production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a full-bodied red wine. Learn about it on a walking tour, and discover highlights such as the Florence-style clock tower, the cathedral with its yet-to-be-finished façade, medieval wine cellars, and the old town walls.

Hear how the local vineyards produce the acclaimed Brunello di Montepulciano wine, and then sample a glass for yourself over a 3-course lunch at a local farm. In traditional Tuscan style, the menu features fresh farm-grown produce as well as a selection of local wine.

From the farm, travel on to Pienza, one of the region’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here, enjoy free time to explore. The layout of the town was created by Pope Pius II, who wanted to change the look of his birth town. Admire the historic center, which stays true to the pope’s vision, and gaze at the fine architecture that abounds. If you are a fan of food, check the shops for pecorino cheese, arguably Pienza’s most prized product.

Your day trip finishes with your coach journey back from Tuscany to Rome.

Wonderful wine lunch, lots of steps
Dennis_M, Mar 2023
Wonderful tour with guide Sonia and driver Alex! Beautiful day stopping and tasting, then an amazing lunch and wine tasting!! A short visit to another town after. Lots of steps on this tour. Mom couldn't do the first stop at all since it was so steep.
Great Day Trip!!!
Justin_B, Mar 2023
Chiara T was a great tour guide and lead us around Tuscany and provided great insights on the region and the surrounding towns. She even pointed out town along the way to keep us engaged the entire tour! She even provided a great restaurant recommendation for later in the night which she wasn’t obliged to do!
Great experience!
Brett_L, Mar 2023
Sonia, Marta, and our driver Alex were excellent! They were very nice, helpful and informative. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend.

Beautiful Day In Tuscany
Cynthia_L, Mar 2023
Ana was a very knowledgeable guide and kept us on track! We enjoyed a wonderful lunch and wine tasting. My only complaint would be that a few of the stops felt rushed. All in all, it was very enjoyable and a beautiful day!
Would highly recommend the tour and guide but without the lunch
Penny_J, Mar 2023
The guide was exceptional as was the tour and day out, and I would have given it 5 stars because of that BUT the lunch was truly awful. The food at best was mediocre, having lived in Italy shameful. The service by some members of the waiting staff was grumpy and I'll tempered, portions tiny, and the price of wine extortionate and ridiculous! A fairly good red wine was 120 euros a bottle! This wine was being 'pushed' as the best quality, but as a regular visitor to France and other wine regions it was only average

Worth every penny and more!!
Sarah_M, Mar 2023
This tour of Tuscany and a few other small towns was fantastic!! Our tour guide, Anna, was very knowledgable and very professional. Remel, our driver kept us safe on the roads. We are from Minnesota so to have it be sunny and warm was awesome. The whole trip went above and beyond our expectations!!
I would do it again
Svetlana_R, Mar 2023
We loved it. Guides were very knowledgeable and tour was worth it. We were walking a lot but also had time to rest. Lunch was delicious and wine was very good.
Tuscany tour
Julie_W, Mar 2023
Tour guides were very knowlegable about area and history. They were patient and let us wander for photos. The lunch and hostess were outstanding, as was the wine!
Great tour, knowledgeable but mean guide
tanya_g, Mar 2023
Our trip started with a stop at a factory that carried various Umbrian and Tuscan products. We were offered samples of pestos, spreads, chocolates etc. Later, we climbed the hills and visited several Tuscan towns, and a farmhouse where we enjoyed a great meal. Our tour guide, Anna, was impatient with her « clients » and spoke about several while her microphone was on, for all to hear. She needs to remember that empathy goes a long way, and if everyone were impatient, rude and uncaring, our world would be horrible. People travel to experience and learn, some are completely out of their comfort zone and shouldn’t berated publicly for it. One lady got lost twice, and another stopped in a shop to buy a gift. Although Anna had said that we should let her know if we went into a shop, there was really no way to let her know as she was so far ahead. Waiting for a few minutes in the land of waiting, really was okay with the rest of us and we certainly didn’t need to hear her speak badly about the participants who had gone into a store or the woman who got lost. Worst of all, towards the end of the trip, her demeanour completely changed, asking what she could do for us etc… simply because tips were to be had shortly. Anna was uncaring and impatient and it made it difficult for many of us to enjoy ourselves, as we had to witness her disdain for anyone who she didn’t like. In addition, she reserved the first few rows of seats on the bus for a family who she had met earlier in the week.

Mercedes_R, Mar 2023
Scenery is breathtaking! Our tour guide was engaging and the drive to and from our destination didn’t feel long at all because of the comfortable seats and stopping points to stretch out. Heather our guide on the bus was accommodating and had lots of tips for the rest of our stay.

Tuscana trip
Kamal_A, Mar 2023
It was very nice trip and nice guid we enjoyed too much i advice my friend next time to go to Tuscany and other trip
Excellent Tour
Danielle_B, Mar 2023
This was an amazing tour! Fabrizio was an excellent guide with Andrea as a great driver. Fabrizio went out of his way to make sure everyone was having a great time and was very personable. The lunch with wine tasting was absolutely incredible and we got to meet and get to know many others traveling and having an excellent time. Fabrizio also gave us many dinner recommendations that were very helpful after the tour! The only thing I would change is the location where the tour stops for coffee/washrooms in the morning, because it was very crowded and difficult to get back to the bus in a timely manner, though Fabrizio and Andrea were very patient with us and made sure everyone made it back to the bus. I would absolutely recommend this tour and will gladly plan another trip to Tuscany in the future!
A view we will never forget
Daniella_G, Mar 2023
This tour was more than we expected. The view was absolutely breathtaking. Our tour guide Heather was amazing, her knowledge of Rome, her friendliness made the tour complete. And can’t forget our driver Antonio, he was superb. Highly recommend.
Second time taking this tour, would book again!
Matthew_A, Mar 2023
The tour was great and Heather was an excellent guide! This was my second time taking this tour, having taken it in 2017 with Pete, and I can’t recommend it enough! It is a must book!

Jenny_X, Mar 2023
This was a great and educational tour. Andrea was amazing and gave us a lot of recommendations in each town and also where to go for the rest of our trip. The food was amazing and the winetasting was a great experience. They do offer you a lot of wine during the meal. I just wish we had more time in each town to explore.
